How do you say "I'm okay" to an answering machine?

I normally hear it in the context of 'dope-ass track' or something.

When referring to a drug I think marijuana first simply because that's what everyone I know uses it that way. People I know who actually use marijuana do not call it dope.

Usually heroin because it's becoming a big problem around here.


Calling weed "dope" is only acceptable on Trailer Park Boys.

OT When I hear it, my first thought is marijuana, but I never hear it because nobody says dope anymore.

I have heard it used as heroin too, but because of my family and people that so cal is referring to, my first reaction is still marijuana when referring to drugs.

Yes it is.

But most of the people I'm around do not have exposure to it (lol ask Nelshizzle about where I live), and because I'm still around my parents most of the time I hear it used to mean 'marijuana'.

I'm still waiting for dope to be acceptable to use here and join the other Americanisms like 'sick' and 'sweet'. I use 'sweet' often, but 'dope' hasn't properly set in.

and heroin I guess

i feel like the states that got hit the worst by meth have a much different 'hard drug culture' if you know what i mean. just like the cities with drug problems that never got hit by the crack epidemic have a different sort of climate.

^You are correct. When I lived in NYC doing coke was taboo, but in Arizona, it's the drug of choice amongst people.

There's a lot of meth out here. I worked for an apt complex as a leasing agent and my bosses daughter died from a meth overdose. She was 16.

I knew a big time methhead at my other job. He would always come to work all fuccked up, playing invisible guitar solos, and yelling at people. He'd always think I was talking shit about him until I got in his face and told him to calm the fucck down and that I wasn't talking shit about him.

If you see a guy without a shirt, and his girlfriend looks like shes 80 years old. It's a 25 year old couple addicted to meth.

Circle K meth stops.

My friend told me it's like feeling like superman and that no one can get in your way. Fucck that shit.

ps: the reason i ask is because i think it's strange how we say "that's dope" in a positive manner despite generally finding heroin to be an atrocious disease of humanity. i'm sure there are sensible reasons but tracking down slang isn't really my strong point. but before i thought about it anymore i thought i'd poll you all and make sure it isn't just a DC - Baltimore thing cause you know we have a love-hate relationship with heroin.

this will be a double post and i am deeply sorry.

Or as a generic term for drugs.

Oh yeah, I'm aware of it, even if I haven't seen much of it here. I'm not qualified to speak on it as it applies to our city but I have been around meth addicts (most notably relatives in Corpus Christi, one of which who just got out of prison) and they are ****ed up. At least they're not dead though.

That's really sad, about the 16 year old.

I do not commonly use the phrase 'that's dope', but it's still something I never thought about like that. I probably should.

I remember one climbed out of a dumpster at a circle k on oracle and glenn at 3am while I was pumping gas. I stopped pumping gas, paid the amount, hastily got into my car while this fuccked up asshole walked right up to my car. I speed off into the street and got away.

My life is so weird...

I don't really associate any specific drug with it. The only times I hear the word 'dope' being used is when someone is making a joke about drugs.
